Quota, in this case, refers to an account’s disk quota. The disk quota is a limit on how much data an account’s directory can contain. The quota is defined in Megabytes (MB). You are able to change an account’s disk quota from the List Accounts interface. This can be useful when an account owner changes web hosting plans.

How to change an account's disk quota

To change the quota:

  1. Click the + button that corresponds to the account that you wish to edit. A hidden menu will open below the account’s row.
  2. Click the Change Quota button. You will be redirected to the Quota Modification interface.
    • In the Quota Modification interface:
      • If the selected user is a reseller, click Show Only this Reseller’s Accounts to view only that reseller’s accounts.
      • If you view the accounts that belong to a specific reseller only, you can click Click Here to view all accounts.
  3. Enter the new quota for the account under the Quota heading, or select Unlimited to remove the quota limit for the account.
  4. Click Save.


When you change quotas, examine the contents of the account to ensure that the account will not be “over quota” when the change is made. If this is the case, request that the owner of the account get rid of unnecessary files to comply with the new disk quota.
